Bloggers 2014 Challenge: Skincare (2nd topic)
I have loved make up and beauty for a long time now, but taking care of my skin has not been one of my top priorities. Don't get me wrong, I cleaned my skin with soap and water, but I didn't look after it and nourish it like I should have done. For many years I looked at moisturisers and serums, but when looking at the prices of them it tended to put me off. £20 and £30 for creams just didn't seem worth it to me.
Now I'm getting more mature in years, shall we say?!? I have noticed the creeping up of time and it seems to be marching up all over my face!! Wrinkles here, crows feet there and just a general dullness of my skin. So about 18 months ago, I decided that enough was enough and I was going to make an effort with my skincare and create a routine that I could stick too and that was not too hard hitting on the old purse strings.
I started by making sure that every morning I moisturised my skin, even though I suffer with an oily/combination skin type I knew that it was still important to add some moisture back, especially in the cold harsh winter months. There were many moisturisers to choose from but I decided to go for one that helped with breakouts too, as I still suffer from hormonal acne.
I have used cleansing wipes in the past to get rid of the easy make up, but then I always try to double cleanse using a cream/gel cleanser to ensure all the make up is off. There are many good cleansers out there on the market, and I do try to vary what products I use as then your skin does not get accustomed to it and you can ensure a good clean skin every time.
I hope that you enjoyed reading this and I hope it gave you some tips on how to try and stop Time attacking your face.
Love and hugs.
